Mirage Collective

17 Nov , 2016  


Exhibition Launch event on 19 November, 7pm at The 1961 Gallery

The 1961 Gallery will host Mirage Collective, a unique international collaboration between five street photographers.

Reiko Yagi, b. Shiga, Japan.
Nino Jim Bacalso, b. Cebu, Philippines
Max Tremblay, b. Montreal, Canada
Serey Siv, b. Montreal, Canada

Mirage members shoot with the pinhole camera, digital mechanics, or on 120 medium format film with a Rolleiflex, or 35mm film with a Leica, using a variety of labor-intensive methods in their work.

Mirage collective resurrects film from the chemical or silicon bath. Some members choose to employ darkroom ritual passed over or neglected in the now pixilated field of photographic art.

Others wade through a systematic sea of memory, manipulating a spectrum of images stored to the modern camera’s quantum motherboard.

Their efforts reveal for you, the natural viewer, the pedestrian, an eerie often gutting photo-narrative which documents the habitual yet wildly unknown behavioral aesthetic of the back street.

Mirage Collective works will display at the 1961 Gallery, November 19 through December 19, 2016.

Kim Hak Exhibition

1 Dec , 2014  

Kim Hak

As a young boy, Kim Hak has seen his mother boil water, and sometimes a wild chicken in a kettle the family have been using during the turbulent years of the Khmer Rouge regime.

His fascination towards objects and heirlooms that Cambodians kept, sometimes secretly, during the civil unrests, has now become photographs in an ongoing series called “Alive”. Each image in “Alive” is the possession of a Cambodian that has endured years of hardship under the Khmer Rouge regime.
